I'm not sure what another Dune film could offer over the movie+miniseries. Jamming the book into 1.5 hours is hard.

TV show maybe? 6-12 1 hour episodes per book?

 

I think these deals are more about securing IP, and they may not have to do anything with it.

So far Legendary bought the rights, and there's talk of possible Denis Villeneuve being considered for directing.

If they take Denis Villeneuve, Id think they're leaning towards Movie, because that's all he's ever done. At this point there is very little to go on, seems like they're in Pre-Production if anything at all. From the few movies I've seen from Villeneuve he's definitely competent. I guess we could expect a very adult Dune. I've only seen Prisoners and Enemy, their weren't your typical Hollywood flick. Guess I'll get a better idea when I see Arrival and the Blade Runner 2047 (reluctantly, don't get me started on Blade Runner, its a whole other topic), those movies are more the big blockbuster type.

ps. - who knows we might get a rebirth in video games, as long as it's not a movie tie in piece of crap.

IMO a miniseries would be best. I quite liked the 2000 miniseries, and if they have a decent budget, it could be a worthy adaptation.
